It’s that time of the year again. Danish little hub Aarhus is opening its city gates to welcome the larger parts of Scandinavia and Northern Europe for SPOT Festival 30 April to 3 May. A four day extravaganza throughout the whole city – like a Danish version of South By Southwest: music, movies and beautiful people. The obvious names on the menu include Rangleklods, Reptile Youth, Kwamie Liv, Asbjørn, Sekouia and many more. And Like every year they managed to book a range of great small and rising bands, excited and hungry for an audience. Team Poule wouldn’t be Team Poule if hadn’t screened the entire line-up and are now ready to drop some names you absolutely cannot miss while being in Aarhus.
First on the list is hot duo Cancer, a new project by When Saints Go Machine lead singer and producer Nikolaj together with Chorus Grant lead singer and guitarist Kristian: great, soulful pop music with a pinch. Their debut EP Ragazzi came out last year on Tambourhinoceros, attached below is their new video for Age Of Pinball. One of the slower numbers in their repertoire. Make sure to give them a proper go on Spotify. They are playing Musikhuset Store Sal on Saturday, 17h45.
